Comments: Oh my…Oh dear. Walter sweety, I am just so dissappointed by all of this! How sad…first you fail to ever land a date in high school then you fail all of your learning disabled classes at high school. And, just when I think you have finally made something out of yourself by becoming a security guard at an elementary school, I decide to stop by this website to check on my little baby and I see that you have resorted back to your old silly pranks that got you in trouble back in school.

My dear Wally, is it something that I have done? Have I caused this? Was it b/c my name was on every wall in the boy’s bathroom from 1987-1989? Did I ignore you? I’m sorry if you are still angry with me b/c I bought you that white 1972 Monte Carlo and made you drive it while I made out with Jason Bickers in the back seat….was that wrong Waldo? Please dear, don’t be angry sugar plum.

Come home Walter, come home my boy…

Comments: Wow!, I sure am glad that Carasco figured out something to do with his free time, Hawaiian boys are much safer now that he has finally hung up his trench coat for good and spends all of his time indoors on the computer letting all of my classmates know how much I love hot-air-ballooning and eating at Bob Evans, okay the Bob Evans comment is true but the rest are just the ramblings of a maniac. Love you bro, hope to see all of you at the reunion where I am positive if properly motivated, John Domino and Scott Schramm will team up once again to sing Careless whisper. I just love the classics!

Comments: Hey Buccaroos, Doug E Fresh here! I’ve just returned from a three-year-long hot air balloon trek across our great nation, all the while competing in numerous cross country Yahtzee tournaments that took me to thirty nine states (my record was 479-184-3). For those of you who have not experienced such competitive rapture, it’s kind of like “Cannonball Run”, but a little safer…I mean, except for my beloved pet parakeet Murray being eaten by a hawk somewhere over Nebraska or the mildly violent run in I had with Gary Coleman at a mall parking lot in Van Nuys, CA the trip was an absolute joy. Originally, while in search of sponsorship, for the duration of the trip, I had intended to eat only at Bob Evan’s fine dinning establishments, but was shocked to learn that they are NOT in every state (how sad is that?!). Despite that let down, I still had so very many great adventures and I absolutely can’t wait to expound upon them further at the reunion! On a side note, I’d just like to warn anybody stopping in Des Moines on the Yahtzee tour to AVOID AT ALL COSTS playing against Dr. David Jero. Why you ask? Because he’s a cheating S.O.B! Hope to see you all soon! Live to Balloon, Balloon to live!!!!!!!

Comments: I am saddened to report that officer Walt Dipietto was injured in the line of duty this past weekend. He is recovering from his burns and should be back to 100% (or his version of it) in a few short weeks. Apparently bullet proof vests do not provide any protection from Dunkin Donuts coffee. Please keep him in your prayers.

I’m so glad to see former class-mates sharing their exceptional talents, just the other day I caught John Dimino’s Wham cover band “Public Restroom” perform at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, it was epic.

Comments: Heading to the 20yr reunion this summer…can’t believe it has been that long! I’m happy to hear that there will be a bunch of folks attending. I’ve been informed by a few alumni that Scott Schramm (class of ’89) will be the featured entertainment/singer for that evening of July 18th. Apparently after H.S. he became a singer on cruise ships (Carnival Cruise line) and on July 18th he will get the evening’s festivities started by singing “The Rose” by Bette Midler…should be interesting I guess.

The official invitation said the date is August 1st and the reservation form and information sheet say July 17-18. The date is July 17-18. There will be a follow up postcard from the reunion company coming out next week some time to clear up any confusion.

Comments: Bowers you are a funny guy. My hobby is safer than that pvc pipe ultra light with a weedwacker motor on it that you fly. At least if I fall its a few feet. You will fall faster than Kevin Carasco’s GPA when he signed up for liberal arts math II. Another example of falling would be John Dimino getting a flurry of rib cracking jabs from me when we would box in my garage. Anyway Bowers I have your room waiting when you come for the reunion. Bring money.

The web site for the Class of 1989 reunion has been set up at www.gulf1989.com. The reunion will be at Saddlebrook July 17-19. Early bird ticket price is $112pp. Pricing will increase to $125pp after April 15th.

Comments: I thought I would drop you all a line to say hello. I am still in regular contact with Walt DePietto and have seen his recent entries. In respect of anyone interested in joinig him in moto x I wouldn’t bother as he is crap and likely to badly damage any vehicle he gets his hands on. This is not a joke, please feel free to contact him and ask him about his recent prangs. I only pray as a person I consider to be my brother he gives up this ridiculous hobby soon. I am a happily married man with a newborn son William. I have been a police officer for 18 years and am currently writing from my post at a royal residence protecting Her Majesty The Queen. I may try to fly the pond at the reunion so will keep a look out. Hope all are prospering well stateside.

Comments: The stats haven’t change much, married to the same guy, live in the same house on the east side. I have officially given up computers due to lack of interest or natural aptitude, and I am getting my masters in human services to be a counselor. I’m completely loving it. 🙂 Still no kids, but my two step kids are almost grown up and doing great – 16 and 18 years old. I remember helping the 16 year old learn how to swim when she was little..

It’s good to hear about those on the site, I wish you all well. Unfortunately, I find I don’t remember many people from school. I would love to hear from Heather Goalen (class of 91?), Dave Brown, and pretty much anyone from ROTC. Each of you who knew me helped shape the person I would become, and I am grateful for it.

Thanks friends, Love, Kristi

Comments: Hello,

As some of you may remember, back in August, my friends, David Riffe and Kristan (Willey) Riffe’s 17 y.o. daughter, Brittany, was in a car accident (in South Carolina). She sustained serious injuries (paralysis) and will need medical care indefinitely.

Well, I have some great friends, James and Christine Presta…James plays in a band (Alluress)…and he has organized a fundraiser concert for Brittany on Saturday, November 17th at the Shipwreck Lounge in Holiday (food from 4 – 7, bands from 7pm – 1am). There will be 6 bands. Albertsons will be donating food. Bay News 9, 98 Rock, and the St. Pete Times may be there. James (a car mechanic…Presta Affordable Automotive) is donating 3 free oil changes, Shapes is donating free memberships, and there will be lots of other great givewaways (for the raffle). This is going to be an awesome night! The whole evening is $10 (plus alcoholic beverages), which will all go directly to the family for Brittany’s medical expenses. Please consider attending this fundraising event. It’s sure to be a fun evening!

Please consider attending this event. I know David and Kristan, and Brittany, will apprecaite your support and attendance! If you have any questions, please e-mail me or call me at 727-967-7831.

Thanks so much!

Comments: Wow, I haven’t been in here for awhile. Just stumbled upon it today while taking a break!

Just finished up with the Edinburgh Film/Theatre Festival. I made some of the costumes for a play “The Rover” this past month that premiered in London and then on stage for 4 weeks in Scotland. It’s been very exciting lately… I’m still reaching for that goal in life to win a Oscar for Best Designs in a movie!! I might get there before I’m 60!

Another highlight this year was to make a few pirate costumes that were worn down the red carpet for the premier of Pirates of the Caribbean At Worlds End. It was thrilling to receive pictures of my costumes being worn in the pictures with some of the cast from the movie! Pretty exciting for me…

Anyway… I love my job and what I do! It was always a passion for me to be creative!

I’ll be married 17 yrs this Valentines Day… and my girls have grown up way too fast! Danielle will be 14, and she’s already at the “This is the car I want for my 16th Birthday” stage… I remember those dreams… And Gillian will be 9. Time goes by so quickly!

Hope everyone is enjoying life… every moment is a treasure.. don’t waste it worrying about the little things… tomorrow is a new day!!!

I didn’t go to the last reunion..but I’ll keep my eyes open for the next one… if I’m in the area..it might be fun!

Comments: My friend, Kristan (Willey) Riffe’s 17 y.o. step-daughter, Brittany, who lives in South Carolina, was in a bad car accident yesterday. As of right now, she is paralyzed from the chest down. Please keep Brittany and her family in your prayers during this most difficult time. I know they covet all the prayers and blessings.

Also, Kristan has just informed me, Brittany will be going to a rehab facility to learn how to function in her new condition (paralyzed). Being 17 and a senior, all Brittany wants to do is continue her studies and graduate on time with her class. School claims if she has a laptop, she can communicate with her teachers and continue her senior year until she is back in school. She is asking for a laptop — and Dell has agreed to give the family at a reduced (yet still significant rate). Therefore, Kristan is please asking for any donations to help them be able to get the laptop. Anything is greatly appreciated, no donation is too small! She and her family thank you greatly for your consideration and generosity.

If you have any questions, please e-mail me and I will be happy to forward your e-mail along to Kristan.

Thanks again so much!

I’ve already got a start on the myspace page. I agree that a cruise or Vegas would probably not be the best thing. Something local to NPR area would be good. Also, the other classes have been using that reunion celebrations. I will check with them to find out if there is someone listed for our class.

Comments: Hey- just my 2 cents….isn’t there already someone designated to head up plans for the reunion? Do we know who that person is- like part of the student government or something? That being said, if there is someone designated, wouldn’t they already be working on something and how would we find out? I didn’t read all the way back in the posts, so if this was already addressed, I apologize!

Comments: Concerning our reunion, I offer you this; let’s keep it simple and ‘local’, meaning lets hold it somewhere in New Port Richey. Not many of us live there anymore and it would be somewhat amusing to be there again. I’m not suggesting we have a cheesy party in the gym, but we could probably find a decent banquet hall.

The logistics invovled with a Vegas trip or a cruise are daunting when so many of us lead very busy lives, to include the large number of out of towners. Not everyone will be happy with the final location or theme, but let’s not miss the chance to see each other again and see who was right and who was wrong about how we would turn out.

It would be great if someone in the area could step forward and make the arrangements.

Comments: Just updating. In November of 2005 we were surprised by the early arrival of our identical twin boys, Spencer and Corbin. So, we’re done…. that was our try for a girl to add to the 2 boys we already have. So, now we have 4 boys. 4 BOYS!!!! Anyway, the twins are doing great and getting into everything. The older boys are awesome too- Neil is 11 and totally into sports, Sammy is 9 and aspires to be lead guitar in a rock band by the time he’s 13. Since the twins were born, I am now a stay at home mom and doing the job I have always wanted to do! My husband has started his own practice since November of last year, providing therapy and counseling services.

Hope everyone is doing well….I’ll check back periodically to see if there is any info on that free cruise for our reunion! 😉

Comments: Sheesh! Twenty years have passed already!?! When I look back to high school it seems like yesterday, but I just can’t remember what I had for lunch 🙂

I don’t know if anyone remembers me – I was pretty much a nobody as far as I recall.

I am still a nobody – but a happy nobody 🙂

I moved to Austin, TX right after graduating. Worked as a software engineer. Then I decided to start my own gig – blossomed then died with the whole dotcom thing. Then met the love of my life (http://www.sherryannboudreau.com) but the only problem was that she lived in Canada… so naturally I moved there!

I am a software architect at a renowned telecom company working on the next big thing.

I will be going to the reunion if there is one – keep me posted.

I hope all is well with all of you!

Comments: Hey there classes of ’89 and ’90!!! I’m wondering if anyone is starting to think about the 20 year reunions coming up in the next couple of years. I’ve had friends asking me to find out who is planning it and to get it on the calendar. We all lead busy lives so this might be a good idea. Any suggestions/ideas? Who is in charge of planning? Can we include both classes?

Comments: Just updating my e-mail address and my life. Mark Davis and I have now been married for 13 years. Yes, I am a saint, just kidding Markie. After seriously considering moving to Birmingham, Al. this year for a job promotion with my company. Mark and I made the decision to stay in Fl. and continue to make Gainesville our home. I am still in Property Management and have 600 UF students living at my site. At times I feel like a mother to 600 not 1. Mr. Fagan’s youngest son actually works for me (small world). Mark continues to work for Florida Farm Bureau and has an incredible job, part of why we decided to stay in Fl. I am sure many of our teachers are surprised we actually succeeded (me too).

Our only son Troy is now 7 and is in the 2nd grade. I must add, he’s a great little soccer player and Daddy has had him ridding 4-wheelers since he was 4.

I am so sorry to hear about Penny and Johnny’s boy. Having only one child ourselves, that hits home. REMEMBER EVERYONE – TO HUG YOUR KIDS AND TELL THEM YOU LOVE THEM EVERYDAY!

I lost touch with many people right after HS. I want to say I am sorry for that. I now live just outside of Philadelphia, PA with my wife and 2 year old son, and we have another child due right around St. Patricks day. I have worked for Merck for 6 years now. They moved us from Tampa, to Tennessee, and now up here to Philadelphia. Hopefully we will be here for a while as we have met some really good friends while we have been here. Anyways, I just thought I would say hello to anyone who might remember me out there. Thanks

I’m sure if we get enough people to sign up early we’ll be able to get a package deal. It’s either that or we use the High School gym or an expensive hotel. There are a lot of short three day cruises that offer quite a few perks such as child care and the like.

I’ve been married for almost 11 years now. I have a 7 year old son, Brennan, and a 5 year old daughter, Claire. They keep my hands full as I am a stay at home mom. Prior to having kids, I taught elementary school for 6 years, and I currently tutor children in the evenings.

For those of you that knew Chris Kolar (graduated ’87), he died in a car accident in June of 1997. Nothing has been posted on here so I thought I’d post something. He is greatly missed.

Take care everyone!

Holly Cow! This is way cool to see and hear what everyone has been up to in the last what 16 years! Oh my, I feel real old but fortunately, still have a young heart. Jamie Blair and Steve Sharon, please send a note. Really miss you both!

I am currently at St. Leo University and on the waiting list for the RN Program at PHCC until 2008. It’s crazy that there is such a demand for nurses but very little availabilty of space in the local schools for Nursing. I have a “little Wendi Jr” that turned 8 years old named Xae. Other than that, I am still me, myself and I. I keep in touch with Marygail Livingston and drop in a word or two to Laurie Ronskie, and whoever I run into in good-old Pasco. Don’t forget Chasco Fiesta is coming up this March.

Pipech and I still recall fondly “oh jillian!” “hippy hippy shake”, how many people can you fit in a photo class revolving door and listening to Ron and Ron in class. If anyone still talks to Dale Skinner please tell him sorry he snorted a line of pottery clay for our amusement. David Jero you’re out there, too. If anyone has a line on those guys, I’d love to know how they are 15 years later. I know how to get in touch with pipech, too even though he refuses to acknowledge anything to do with Gulf High 🙂

Comments: Hey fellow grads! Kim (Harvey) told me about this site, so I thought I’d check it out. I’m married (4 years) and have a beautiful 15 month old daughter, Eryn Sydney. All three of us went to the reunion last year (Eryn was barely 4 weeks old!), but I was too shy to talk to too many people. Shame on me. I graduated from UNF in 1993 and moved to NYC to get my MA in Child Development at Columbia University in 1995. I was a child therapist for 3 years, but now I am a proud SAHM! I’d love to hear from any of you. Byron, I’ve lost your email addee. Hope your little one is here and well!

Comments: CLASS OF 1989. Just curious to see who’s still around. Reading entries of the other alumni makes me “proud” to be a Gulf High graduate. What’s with the class of ’92 anyway? Hi to all the dudes, scoobs, jocks, flops, and nerds who are now earning three times the salary of those who made fun of them. Hope all the snotty cheerleaders are fat and ugly now. Anyone else have heartburn and grey hair from their ex? Haven’t had to call the hair club for men…yet. What the hell is with the proceding forehead, though? On a more serious note…Anyone else miss Coach Robison? Great teacher and coach (my cross country coach 1987-1989). His motivation and encouragement will live on in all our memories. Hope everyone is “partying like its 1999” sounds like a song doesn’t it? I think the artist’s name is %$*#@?…Good luck in the new millenium!
